Do I have HIV?
Sep 24, 2013

Hi, I am 19 years old. I tested positive for Genital herpes on September 18, 2011. I got it from my ex. I have only had 2 outbreaks. But I take Valtrex 500mg on a daily basis to prevent outbreaks.. Since then, I have only had 6 sexual partners. Only 3 were without a condom.. Every one of them had no STD's or HIV. They were all clean. One guy out of the 6 of them is my now fiancé, we have been together for 8months and 2days. He has no disease or anything, and we've rarely used condoms. (We are trying to concieve now.) About a week and a half ago, I stopped taking my birth control and I was exposed to a lot of dust. The day after, I started coughing with mucus. About a couple of days ago, I noticed white lines on my tonsils and inner cheeks. They easily wipe off. I went to the doctor and I was told I have Bronchitis and Oral Thrush. I will be taking medicine for it. Does it sound like I have HIV?

Response from Mr. Chambers

Get tested.
